The Zen Peacemaker Order has initiated a training program, led by Bernie Glassman,  for those interested in training in Bearing Witness. The program begins with a one-day workshop led by Jared Seide, Director, Center for Council, on The Way of Council,  on November 8, 2014 in Krakow, Poland. That is followed by the Bearing Witness Retreat at Auschwitz. After the Retreat, on November 15, there is another one-day workshop, led by Jared Seide, evaluating the Effect of Council at the Retreat.

On June 11-12, 2015, there is a two-day workshop on Deepening the Practice of Council followed by a two-day workshop on the Three Tenets of the Zen Peacemaker Order (ZPO), i.e., Not-Knowing, Bearing Witness and Loving Actions. This workshop will be taught by Bernie Glassman.

On November 15-16, 2015, Bernie will lead a two-day workshop on applying the Three Tenets of the ZPO to the Bearing Witness Retreat at Auschwitz. This workshop is followed by the Bearing Witness Retreat at Auschwitz. After the Retreat there will be a one-day workshop on Evaluation of the Retreat via the Three Tenets and how these Tenets can be integrated into our lives.
